Has a detectable flavor of spices, yeast and roasted malts with a slightly dry hoppy finish. A little thin, but pulls off the Marzen style reasonably well. Not technically one of the better examples of the style, but worth a try if one wants a sessionable autumn beer.

From a distance, it looks like a Marzen/Oktoberfest. But when you get up close, its just brown water with a tad bit of hop and malt.

On Tap at the Great Lakes Brewfest. First off at the beer fest 2008, poured by the brew master himself. Amber with a medium white head. Aroma of grain, sweet malt and the smell of Munich. Taste of sweet malt, apple, malt and spice. Finishes dry and it’s a bit thin but overall not a bad effort from Point brewery.

Single from Three Cellars.
Sweet and a bit weak light malts. Not bad though.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2009 Marzen style, light golden brown color with a thin, light tan head. Slight hop aroma with a hint of caramel. Rich, roasted malt taste with a little hoppy bite. A well balanced and tasty Oktoberfest beer.

Well...yeah. Don’t really want to go through a full 6 of this...but beer’s beer and it’s not the color of pee.

Same old Point for me... again it tastes like Point Special Lager, but with random spices thrown in... not impressed.

Copper color. Smell of roasted malt, leaves, spice and bread. Taste of leaves, malt, nuts, spice, bread and caramel. At times, it was enjoyable, and then at other times it was harsh.

12 oz bottle. Poured a clear medium orange color. Head was off white with good retention. There was only minimal lace left behind at the end. Aroma was of light butterscotch/buttery caramel. There was also a whiff of steeping barley. Slightly sweet with a hint of malty caramel flavor. There wasn’t any significant hop bitterness or flavor. So so.

typical orange/brown color (great autumn colors) for an O’fest. head is frothy, beige. aroma has a lot of bready malts and a nice earthiness. flavor is pretty similar with a metallic quality. not bad, but thin.
